How to make a dressing room?
Agree that it is not a bad thing to have in your apartmentA separate room in which shoe racks are conveniently placed, numerous shelves, rods for clothes hangers, pull-out baskets and various boxes for small items. Making such a room a reality is not so difficult. You just need to think through the project and start a renovation in the apartment. Let's try to figure out how to make a dressing room with our own hands.
Choose a place
Of course, if you are a happy owner of an apartment innew building (with free planning), then it will not be difficult to find a place for a dressing room. It is much more difficult to choose a place for a dressing room in an apartment in which you already live. The simplest of course, is to allocate a separate room for storing things and various utensils. However, not every owner of the standard "little girl" can afford it. Therefore, consider other options.
For example, how to make a cloakroom from the pantry. It is possible to partition off for her part of the hallway, corridor, bedroom. Or use for this purpose wall cabinets, which need to be combined with each other. In any case, you will have to face construction work and without preconditions here is indispensable. It will also require reconciliation for alteration, in order to avoid trouble, which threatens unauthorized redevelopment of the apartment.
How to make a dressing room with your own hands?
We will need:
- Place in the apartment.
- Plates of particle board.
- Metal profiles.
- A standard set of tools.
To create even a small room, by all meansyou will need walls and a door. And the dressing room here is an exception. Partitions you do not need only if the wardrobe room you fit the end of the corridor or storage. If you plan to take part of the hall or room under it, then make a couple of new walls will have for sure.
For this kind of work, it's best to usegypsum board, which is ecological clean, not heavy, easy to cut and install. In the future, it will not be difficult to trim it in any way. To fix the sheets of plasterboard, we construct a metal frame. For this we need special racks and guides. We fix them to walls, ceiling and floor. We fasten each other with hardware. We leave room for the doorway. Next, cut the necessary size gypsum cardboard and we frame it skeleton. Make a wardrobe room of similar materials is relatively inexpensive. And you can buy them at any construction store.
The doors for the dressing room can be ordinaryor swinging (paneled, smooth, with glass inserts or stained glass windows), but can be folded in accordion or moved aside. Take into account that sliding doors (by the type of sliding-door wardrobes) perfectly save the area, and if you make them mirror, they will also expand the space visually.
Arrangement of a dressing room
Decorating the dressing room, too, doyourself. The ceiling and walls should be primed with a primer and painted. You can also paste them with different wallpaper. If there is a desire, you can even wall the walls with plastic panels. But most importantly, do not forget about the lighting. If the room is small, a pair of point-fitting ceiling lights will be enough. You can also hang a flat chandelier.
We prepared the room, now we fill ourdressing room with everything necessary. Now there are various systems of modules for storage systems, which can then be put together. High racks are an indispensable element of any wardrobe. They can be bought, made to order or try to build yourself from chipboard or MDF.
On the upper shelves of the rack are usually locatedthings that are rarely used. In the middle there are laundry baskets and containers for knitwear. It will not be bad, if you provide for the availability of drawers for various trifles. At the very bottom, usually there are compartments for shoes, overalls and various household appliances (iron, vacuum cleaner, etc.).
Do not forget about the section, which is convenientto store outer clothing: blouses, dresses, suits. Usually they are equipped with strong rods and hangers. It will not be superfluous if you find a place on one of the walls or doors and hang a mirror so you can see yourself in full growth. And the last. Purchase a small step-ladder or a ladder-stool, with which you could easily and easily reach the topmost shelves.
So we figured out how to make a dressing roomroom with their own hands. As you can see, nothing is impossible here, you just need to make a little effort. But your wardrobe closet with ease will accommodate all your shoes, clothes, umbrellas and bags and a lot of useful and not very things. Try it and you will succeed!
